Earthships ARE a new approach to sustainable living. Imagine building a house out of discarded tires and aluminum cans. Imagine using environmentally friendly materials and techniques to create a truly self-sufficient home. Imagine interfacing and harnessing nature to create a dwelling that lives with the land, not on top of it.
Topics: environment, building, house, construction, sustainable design
Celebrations of the 2,500th anniversary of the creation of a democratic society in ancient Greece took place in 1991. Dignitaries from the various Western democracies attended ceremonies in Greece. The hypocrisy of these celebrations seem obvious in light of the fact that modern parliamentary and congressional democracy is, in many ways, a violation of the principles of direct democracy that were established in ancient Athens and that are examined here in C.L. R. James' thought provoking essay.

two texts by Comrade Parvati of the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) with commentary by Butch Lee It is time and again seen that women masses do come in a tide to participate in revolutionary movements producing some potential women leaders. But this tide along with the prospective women leaders seems to recede once the revolution is completed or is defeated. The chief reason behind this phenomenon is the existence of the concept of private property. As long as private property remains women...

Two important political organisations in the history of the amaerican white left. It points out their contributions while not glossing over their mistakes and weaknesses. SDS grew to become a large white radical student movement against the Vietnam war in the sixties, while the WUO, a splinter group of SDS, tried to move "from protest to resistance" by carrying out clandestine actions against U.S. imperialism from 1970-1976.

One of those who did not forsake the plough but took up arms in defence of the Russian Revolution, fighting against interventionists, Tsarists, Whites, and Reds, and who linked up with the Makhnovists, survived to tell his story. It is a fascinating account of revolutionary Russia as it really was. This is the second in a series on the history of the now defunct USSR. It will be followed by account of two powerful lies that cost thousands of lives, and others yet to come may include secrets of...

A primer of direct action. Members of the Animal Liberation Front act directly to stop animal suffering, at the risk of losing their own freedom. Direct action refers to illegal actions performed to bring about animal liberation. These are usually one of two things: rescuing animals from laboratories or other places of abuse, or inflicting economic damage on animal abusers. Due to the illegal nature of ALF activities, activist work anonymously, and there is no formal organization to the ALF.

A contemporary has said: "if the truth were in my hands, I should be careful not to open them." This is perhaps the saying of a savant, certainly that of an egotist. Another has written: "The truths which one least likes to hear are those which most need to be pointed out." Here then are two thinkers whose views differ widely. I would rather agree with the second, although in practice his outlook presents difficulties. Wise men of all nations teach me that it is not always...

Anti-Racist Action (ARA) is a network of youth based anti-racist groups across North America dedicated to fighting all forms of racism. Mpls ARA is a part of this network. We oppose things like the racist institution of the police as well as organized racist groups like the klan and nazi skinheads. We believe that the only way to smash racism is by doing it ourselves! We are also anti-sexist and pro-queer.

None of this is very dramatic. The logic of outright withdrawal is doubtless more compelling, and it is certainly more carthartic for the person who avows it. But I must remind the reader of my purpose. It was to outline the course of action that would work-that would meet the requirements of the largest number of people concerned, including the largest possible number of Americans, and would not depend on a favorable reaction by the opposition.

An Analysis of White Supremacy. This pamphlet will briefly discuss the nature of Anarchism and its relevance to the Black Liberation movement. Because there have been so many lies and distortions of what Anarchism really stand for, by both its left-and right-wing ideological opponents, it will be necessary to discuss the many popular myths about it. This in itself deserves a book, but is not the intention of this pamphlet, which is merely to introduce the Black movement to revolutionary...

Escape from death in a gas chamber or a Pogrom, or incarceration in a concentration camp, may give a thoughtful and capable writer, Solzhenitsyn for example, profound insights into many of the central elements of contemporary existence, but such an experience does not, it itself, make Solzhenitsyn a thinker, a writer, or even a critic of concentration camps; it does not, in itself, confer any special powers. In another person the experience might lie dormant as a potentiality, or remain forever...

The Hungarian Revolution of October 1956, wrote its message in the blood of thousands of ordinary working people, particularly the youth. The message is that, today, the class struggle throughout the world is not one between East and West or between empires and trade union leaders. It is the struggle of the working class for its own emancipation. It is the struggle of the working class against all the bureaucratic regimes, institutions and ideologies, which, in both East and West, obstruct its...

For almost 70 years, Lucy Parsons fought for the rights of the poor and disenfranchised in the face of an increasingly oppressive industrial economic system. Lucy's radical activism challenged the racist and sexist sentiment in a time when even radical Americans believed that a woman's place was in the home.

This is the cry of the anarchist-revolutionary to the exploited. Rebel, destroy all government and see that it never takes root again. Power is used by those who have never really lived by the work of their hands. Government power will never let workers tread the road to freedome; it is the instrument of the lazy who want to dominate others, and it does not matter if power is in the hands of the bourgeois, the socialists or the Bolsheviks, it is degrading. There is no government without teeth,...

We are Class War Anarchists. We believe that a conflict must go on between those who work for a living and our enemies who get rich off our labor but, do nothing until those who live off our labor are laid low and the society with power and privilege based on wealth and class is abolished in favor of a free society based on mutual aid, voluntary cooperation and personal freedom and responsibility. We advocate the methods of Revolutionary Syndicalism to win the class war against the corruption...

A long history of affirmative action-for whites. Many middle-class white people, especially those of us from the suburbs, like to think that we got to where we are today by virtue of our merit-hard work, intelligence, pluck, and maybe a little luck. And while we may be sympathetic to the plight of others, we close down when we hear the words "affirmative action" or "racial preferences." We worked hard, we made it on our own, the thinking goes, why don't 'they'? After all,...

The transition from theory to practice is now gaining expression in sections of the farm; subsequent contributions to this article diagram the process. Much of this work is experimental: we have access to considerations developed by ecologists and foresters, orchardists, and farmers but ultimately our Cape Cod landscape will speak to us more clearly than journals and books.

This pamphlet presents to you the writing of former Black Panther Party member Michael Cetewayo Tabor. It was written in 1969, when he was being framed in the New York Panther 21 case. Ceteway, or "Cet" as he was affectionately called, was a shining example of the..."X" factor. He, like Malcolm, demonstrated powerfully that even the brother and sister off the block, the outlaw, the welfare addict, the dope fiend, gangmember, etc could shake off the chains of addiction and...

Welcome to the first issue of August Spies fanzine. I had originally planned on having this out in November, but it turned out I didn't even start working on it until then. Oh well.

Not until one realizes what makes veganism "unreasonable," will that individual realize the true reasoning behind what it means to be vegan. Not until one questions what it is that depicts veganism as "wrong," in the eyes of non-vegans will one gain the ability to adequately address the wrongs driving their refusal to accept humanity's violent and unwarranted treatment of non-human animals. Not until the principles of veganism are applied to the rubric of injustice as a...

Ali Khalid Abdullah is a New Afrikan (Black) Anarchist prisoner, who was convicted in 1989 of "assault with Intent to Rob while Armed." He was sentenced to 10 to 20 years. This came as a result of him and other comrades attempting to enact Peoples Justice against a major drug dealer who allowed one of his drug workers to sexually abuse an 11 year old girl as "payment" for the little girls' mother's drug habit.

For a man in prison the power relationships of Amerikan society are as immediate as a nightstick cracking your front teeth. For a black man, that prison is a concrete and steel mirror reflecting black history and framing black existance. There is an incisiveness, an accuracy of analysis accorded to a view punctuated by steel bars, from the inside looking out.

If a simple and healthful change in eating habits, along with a localization of most food production and a major shift toward organic farming were to take place over the next generation, food production and distribution could be weaned from their current heavy dependence on fossil fuels. In the process, the enormous suffering now inflicted on livestock would be greatly reduced.
